Pyranha have been doing a fantastic job to help their partner stores. Not only in creating epic boats and driving innovation through difficult times, but also in providing our staff with the right information to advise customers in the best way.

So what was discussed and how can it be useful to anyone considering adding the latest home grown half slice to their quiver? Read on to find out.

Here we take our first look at the Ozone, the new river play model from Pyranha. This builds on the ever popular Ripper series and brings more fun factor to the party.
